Don & Sons Pinot Noir 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Our 2012 Pinot Noir explodes out of the glass with raspberry and cranberry aromas, followed by rich notes of crème brûleé and nutmeg. Flavors of strawberry, red cherry, and pomegranate are complemented by delicate notes of vanilla and cedar. This medium-bodied, nicely balanced wine offers soft, velvety tannins and is a sure crowd pleaser. Enjoy with grilled pork chops or herb-stuffed mushrooms.

  To Don Sebastiani and Sons, family is clearly an important aspect of winemaking. While Don Sebastiani and Sons wasn’t founded until 2001, Samuele Sebastiani created a winery in 1904, and started growing the company, as well as the town of Sonoma. Over the years, the winery changed hands many times, but it always stayed within the family. By 2000, the winery was producing eight million cases of wine a year. However, at that time, Don Sebastiani sold many of the assets and kept only the family brand and the Sonoma winery and vineyards. Though he stepped down as CEO and Chairman in 2000, that wasn’t the end for him. In 2001, he and his sons, Donny and August, founded Don Sebastiani and Sons, eventually growing production back up to two million cases annually. Today, Greg Kitchens and Michelle McClendon, winemakers for Don Sebastiani and Sons, strive to produce high-end wine at affordable prices. They don’t just source grapes from California - they’ve also formed partnerships to create Australian and Chilean blends, further expanding the company’s reach and complexity. Read less

Simple, one dimensional Pinot from Chile. Touches of smoke and berries, with tannins on the finish.

Brilliant garnet color with seductive rose petal green tea aroma. The palate is ripe with heavily extracted cherry and strawberry flavors with a slight astringency akin to pomegranate seeds. - Winery
